Maine OUI lawyers John Webb, Vincent LoConte, and Nicole Williamson are ready to defend you in all Southern Maine courts.

A breathalyzer test is when a person breathes into a handheld device that measures their BAC. Police officers use them to check if a person is drink driving. Some people also keep them in their cars to check their own BAC levels as a safety precaution.

While a test may enable an officer to make a DUI arrest, these results aren’t admissible in court. This is one of the key reasons that many lawyers for DUI near me spend a lot of time challenging how reliable the breathalyzer results are.

What Is a Breathalyzer Test During a Maine OUI Investigation?

I am proud to report that this past weekend I was a Demonstration Speaker and Group Instruction Team member at the Summer Session of the National College of DUI Defense, July 26th to the 28th, hosted by Dean George Stein and held at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The National College of DUI Defense (NCDD) is a professional, non-profit corporation dedicated to the improvement of the criminal defense bar, and to the dissemination of information to the public about DUI Defense Law as a specialty area of law practice. The Summer Session is an annual national gathering of many of the finest DUI/DWI/OUI defense lawyers who meet to teach, learn and exchange ideas about defending citizens accused of operating under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

This has been one of the highlights of my legal career. I was so honored to be asked by Dean Stein to participate and even more honored to serve. This was my first time addressing the entire college, and my third time acting as an instructor. I am always amazed at how much I learn at these sessions, especially while teaching, and how gratifying it is to help others. Thanks to the entire NCDD Family for the support.
